Vision/Revision: New Mexico Poets on the Page, opening Friday, March 23, 2018, at the Branigan Cultural Center, celebrates National Poetry month in April. The exhibit runs through May 19.
A collaboration with the New Mexico State University Archives and the Creative Writing Program at NMSU, this exhibit presents a glimpse into the works of New Mexico poets Lorenzo Torrez, Margaret Page Hood, Eugene Manlove Rhodes, and Keith Wilson. These four poets wrote about southern New Mexico’s people, ranching life, cultural identities, and our Chihuahuan desert environment. The working notes, drafts, and final manuscripts they left behind, held in the NMSU Archives, provide insight into the poet’s mind at work, as words are shaped into meaning.
